Katie is very nice! The price was good, hot water in the bathtub, the bads were a bit old and there is no breakfest but there's a kitchen with cofee/tea... overall it's a very nice place to spend the night!

Having decided on the spur of the moment to take a trip to Kilrush to do a bit of shopping I booked this hostel for the night. Martina, the owner was lovely and very welcoming when we arrived. The room which consisted of a double bed and a set of bunk beds, was basic but clean and for 22 Euro... More

Last-minute decision to stay in Kilrush meant no B&B single rooms available, then I remembered the name "Katie O'Connors Hostel," and thought, "What the heck?!" Mary's family has owned the place for years - one son hosteled a lot years ago in his youth and suggested the family start one - now one daughter is in the travelling/marketing game and... More

Every room of the house has its history, which is written on a piece of paper on every door. Three clean showers and three toilets for the hostel, but it's not... More

I'm not sure that I stayed in the same place as the other reviewers, but the rooms were pretty typical of hostels; large dorm rooms with shared bathrooms. The biggest complaint is that the bath and shower room is communal but doesn't have a door on the outside. There really isn't room to disrobe and change in the showers themselves,... More

Mary and Joe will treat you like Kings and Queens. The Hostel is located right in the centre of town with access to pubs, restaurants, the port, and shops. The price is right and the rooms are quaint. The kitchen is next to a lovely garden and you can eat outside in the garden if weather permits. Milk, butter, coffee,... More
